Donlyn Lyndon
Donlyn Lyndon's work as an architect, author and educator concerned with the design of places has been widely recognized. Within UC Berkeley's College of Environmental Design, he is a member of the Graduate Group for the Design of Urban Places and teaches in both the architecture and master of urban design programs. He is the editor of PLACES, a journal of environmental design, author of The Sea Ranch (with Jim Alinder) and The City Observed: Boston, and co-author of Chambers for a Memory Palace and The Place of Houses.
Lyndon serves on the boards of the International Laboratory of Architecture and Urban Design in Italy and of the Charles Moore Center for the Study of Place in Austin, Texas. He is chair of the board of directors for the Kronos Performing Arts Association and has served as a member of the Architectural Advisory Board for the U.S. State Department's Office of Overseas Building Operations. His architectural and urban design practice has included a continuing series of works at Sea Ranch, Calif., where, with Moore Lyndon Turnbull Whitaker, he was one of the designers of Condominium One (1965), which subsequently received the distinguished 25-year Award from the AIA. He has continuing architectural work there and has been the architect for projects elsewhere in California, Texas, New England, the South and the Northwest.
His urban design practice in California has included plans for Pasadena, Menlo Park and Berkeley, including the Bayer Biotech campus and the Downtown Public Improvements Master Plan for the city of Berkeley. He is a fellow of the American Institute of Architects, his work has received numerous design awards, and he is frequently asked to serve on architectural competition juries. Lyndon headed the Department of Architecture at the University of Oregon and at MIT and is a former chair of the Department of Architecture at UC Berkeley. His work as an educator was honored in 1997 with the AIA-ACSA's Topaz Award, the highest award in architectural education, and he has served as a chancellor's professor and as the Eva Li professor at Berkeley.

Condo dwellers can help revitalize that part of downtown Berkeley, says Lyndon.
The design also calls for 50 condominiums, which will help revitalize that part of downtown, said Donlyn Lyndon, a UC Berkeley architecture professor who is working on the project.
"You need to get people living downtown, people who have a 24-hour investment in the city," he said.
Remaking Center Street
Lyndon, who also edits the urban design journal Places, sees the new hotel as part of the remaking of Center Street itself, which has a wide sidewalk and rows of shade trees on its south side -- because of his work in the past.Along the north side of the street, however, more than half the block is taken up by a crumbling industrial building, the university's former printing plant, which presents ugly blank walls to passersby.
Lyndon describes the bank branch beside it -- a one-story brick building with a flat roof surrounded by beds of ivy where rats sometimes scurry for shelter -- as "out of sync" -- a suburban project at odds with its urban surroundings.
